Rumour: Details on new 4-inch iPhone surface

October launch date for evolutionary device likely

Product: iPhone 5 | Manufacturer: Apple

More information regarding Apple’s new iPhone has come to light and the rumoured larger Retina display is just the beginning of the changes.

Poking around under the hood of iOS 6 (the OS is obviously designed for the new hardware so you can deconstruct the code to gain clues), 9to5Mac thinks that the new iPhone will be running on a variant of Apple's A5 chip.

More interestingly, it will have 1GB of RAM, which is double the amount found in the iPhone 4 and 4S.

Processing power 

Jumping back to the processor - which is based on an dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 - the new iPhone has a S5L8950X processor compared to a S5L8940X on the iPhone 4S and the S5L8945X found in the new iPad.

What this actually means, no one knows at the moment, but it seems that it could be a low power variant.

Of further interest is the new iPhone's graphic processing unit: the chip is identified as SGX543RC*. This compares to the PowerVR SGX543MP2 that currently powers the A5 chip used in iPhone 4S. The new iPad uses a quad-core version. 

What's most interesting, however, is whether the new resolution and aspect ratio of the screen will pose a hurdle for game developers to overcome, and what implications it will have for running old games and apps.

We expect to find out more at WWDC, starting 11th June.
